a few places come to mind. 

Safari Cafe.

-its a shack in a parking lot, but the food is pretty freakin amazing. took my fam there pre graduation day and they loved it. Mostly cabbies and dudes there. Never seen any somali women there or women for that matter, s when i took my ex there the first time a lot of dudes were looking her way. A little awkward, but again their beef steak on rice is freaking amazing. 

Catfish Biffs Pizza

- best post drunk food imo. started to avoid it at times(post bar hrs) for stupid fights taking place.

thats all i can think of now. ha

ok, so having taken part in atkins, paleo, salad, no carb for a month, barfing down the toilet, i can honestly i hate them all(WITH A PASSION) 

in all fairness i have seen weight loss in pretty much all of them. some more than others. mentally however, i was just never satisfied. i would constantly hit a weight plateaus that left feeling unaccomplished to the goals i set forth. It was one "diet" after the next. 

Enter IIFYM(If It Fits Your Macros). I can eat pizza, ice cream, burgers and still drop weight?? waaaah!!

Google it and its pretty simple and straight fwd. Dont make it more complicate it more than it needs to be.Its simple- hit your protein, carbs, fats(your macro-nutrients) and fiber daily. 

 I have been on it for about 2.5 years and currently on my cut. i started back in March(after i did a healthy bulk for 9 months) i weighed in at 208lbs around 21% bf and now i am around 188.3 at 17% Goal is to be around 175 at 10%?? by aug, so lets see.. The one thing i have noticed from last years cut is that i am eating 200 cals more than last year to achieve the same weight loss.

myfitnesspal make its super easy. Plug and chug. it even scans the bar code and plugs in all the info for you.

currently on 1850 cals 208 carbs 162 pro 41fat and 30g of fiber i have dropped weight  while eating everything i love.  I am not much of a drinker, so its pretty dropping weight at roughly 1-1.3 lbs a week is not a prob with 2 twenty min hit cardio sesh a week.

So this past week i have been eating ice cream every night and lean(due to my fat restriction) burgers the last 3 days in a row. 

Key to any "diet" is consistency. iifym is no different. If you are a numbers kinda person and pays attention to detail then iifym is for you. 

All the best is whatever you guys choose :)

I've bought fake braded stuff there like shades(wafer, rb Jacksons), digital watches and such.. Worth every even for a few bucks. Most even ship free to the US. Wait ranges from 10-30 days but they do provided tracking info.

You know the buyer you used? No rush.

My experience from Ali has been hit or miss. I tend to stick with a couple of guys who provide good qc (quality control) by sending me the pics of the product and wait for my approval before sending it.

Welcome to dallas. 

I wear my ohio state gear almost daily(mostly in the gym) and get comments on it almost every single time. Mostly positive from people who moved here from ohio and a few alums. 

Link for the jersey please :)

I cant speak for other schools, but i can compare Ohio State to Duke athletics. 

This is just my observation and my experience; not "facts". 

I used to tutor(and TA for Bio 101, Chem 101 and Swahili) at osu and to be brutally honest, other than just being outright lazy some players(more than 5) had a hard time reading and pronouncing words at ohio state. 

While pursuing my MS at Duke, on the side for beer money i tutored (mostly athletes)and it was night and day vs Ohio State. Night and day. Most were pretty hard working and did what was asked of them. The mentality at Duke is very different even if you are not the brightest. You do your assignments or at least attempt to, and you dont have people from your staff following you to class to make sure you at attending them. 

I also know three guys who have gone to great schools on athletic scholarship with ok grades and test scores. Northwestern(football) 2.5 gpa, 1050 SATs, Cornell(crew) 1210 SATs 3.5gpa and Georgetown(crew) 1160 SATs and 3.4 gpa)

So, while I dont disagree with you, I do feel athletes at Duke were much much more hardworking than OSU. 

P.s: and you did not get the DV from me :)
